Endometriosis Impacts 176 Million Women. Yet Most People Ask ‘Endo What?’

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. I sometimes joke about how I only have one ovary, but endometriosis isn’t funny.

It can be very painful, in some cases women suffer from chronic pain.  It can cause infertility and can be very expensive to treat.

What is endometriosis you may ask?

It has to do with the lining of the uterus. The uterus and other reproductive organs grow sores on the outside and when the scar tissue and sores keep building up it can be very painful and cause problems with the bladder and bowels.

While it is not the prettiest topic of conversation it is still worth talking about.  It is much worse than a normal menstrual cycle and can be very harmful to the reproductive organs.

While it is not fatal, there is no cure and it is something some women have to deal with and treat their whole lives.  Usually ending in a hysterectomy.

I’m not a doctor, however, so I found this enlightening informational video to explain the disease, its diagnosis, and treatments.

So sometime this month put on something yellow to support the women dealing with this disease. And if the mood strikes you, post a selfie like I did, to show your support!
